Abstract Well-developed oral flanges, typical of juvenile passerines, jwrsist in adults of several species of Australian honey eaters. In at least one species, changes in colour of the flange seem to be related to breeding activity. The sex ratios in collections of 19 species ranged from 0.7 to 9.9 ri':?. With the highest and lowest excluded to achieve homogeneity of ratios within respective genera, sox ratios of eight genera ranged from 1.3 to 2.8
